about

BURIED HORSES Melbourne, Australia

Tempestuous and tortured, Buried Horses are known for weaving tales of death and woe. Keeping firmly in line with their compatriots - The Drones, The Triffids, Rowland S. Howard - they are drawn to the darker side of existence and the trials of those trying to survive a cruel and unloving world. They deliver a foreboding vision that captures the rugged beauty of the violent Australian landscape. ... more

Track Name: GIVE MY LOVE TO MARIE (LIVE)
I’M A BLACK LUNG MINER FROM EAST TENNESSEE
RAISED MY FAMILY ON COAL DUST AND BEANS
THAT OLD BLACK LUNG’S GOT ME NO LIFE LEFT IN ME
HANG THE LANTERN IN THE WINDOW GIVE MY LOVE TO MARIE
FOR TWENTY-FIVE YEARS I’VE WORKED IN THE MINES
WHERE THE EARTH IS AS BLACK AS A COLD WINTERS NIGHT
THERE’S A MILLION IN THE GROUND NOT A PENNY FOR ME
HANG THE LATERN IN THE WINDOW GIVE MY LOVE TO MARIE
I’VE LOVED ALL MY CHILDREN SIX SONS OF MINE
I PRAY THAT THEY NEVER MUST WORK IN THE MINE
FOR THE BLACK LUNG WILL GET THEM THEY’LL DIE JUST LIKE ME
HANG THE LANTERN IN THE WINDOW GIVE MY LOVE TO MARIE
THERE’S FROST ON THE GROUND ICE IN THE TREES
THE AIR IS SO HEAVY I CAN’T HARDLY BREATHE
OH THE OLD BLACK LUNG’S GOT ME AND SOON I’LL BE FREE
HANG MY LATERN IN THE WINDOW GIVE MY LOVE TO MARIE
HANG MY LATERN IN THE WINDOW GIVE MY LOVE TO MARIE

PAINTING: 'Miners', Vincent van Gogh, Pencil on Paper, 1880
Track Name: ONLY LADY OF THE HINTERLAND (LIVE)
YOU CAN WATCH IT DISSIPATE
THE BEAUTY OF NEW SOUTH WALES
ON LOW-LYING PLAIN
DRY TO HER DOORSTEP

SHE HOLDS HER BREATH
FOR THE BETTER HALF
ACTING OUT HIS MISSION
TO FIND WATER OR A GOD

DO YOU MISS YOUR WATER?
OH YE FAITHFUL SENTINEL
PERFORM A DAILY VIGIL
THUMB YOUR ROSARY
AND YOU CAN PRAY FOR WORD
FROM THE MISSIONARY
BUT WHET YOUR SWORD FINE LADY
OR BE DONE OUT IN THE DIRT

ONLY, ONLY, LADY
ONLY LADY OF THE HINTERLAND
FELL INTO A HOLE
A HOLE OF PARANOIA

YOU FOOL DON’T FOLLOW SHADOWS
LURKING AROUND YOUR SLAUGHTER

DO YOU SWEAR THE LION’S SHARE
WAS EATEN WITH YOUR LEFT HAND?

SWALLOWING FAST
THE RATIONS THAT YOU KEPT
A CARNIVAL OF SOULS
MERRY-GO-ROUND YOUR HOME

ONLY, ONLY, LADY
ONLY LADY OF THE HINTERLAND

SO GO WHET YOUR SWORD
ONLY LADY / FINE LADY
